((laura on cam)) there's no doubt we want to make sure our kids are as active as possible... but a newly released report says parents might want to hold off on putting their young children in contact martial our kids around active as possible. but newly released report parents way mant want to hold off put in contact with martial arts. joette here now with look research and why this could bad news we heard all along this good for kids. build strength and good for not just physical strength. but mental emotional strength too. >> yes. i think that is correct. but i think that you have to a look at the potential for injury as well. again, it depends on it noncontact or contact. and what are they teaching your children how much time are they spending and how aggressive are these instructors.
martial arts. they looked at things like tae kwon do, judo and even mix martial arts they didn't have any pediatric data for they computed the injury rates in those individual sports. they broke it down into which body part most likely to be injured even looked at the amount of time or percentage of those individuals who had to take time off from practicing that sport because of an injury. it's a very informative report available to so definitely something you might want to take look at if your child is participating. look at this i think what's different about this then wrestling willing or football or any other sport with their contact. yeah it depend on the particular type of martial arts. so they really did kind of highlight, they looked a karate for example. and tae kwon do that rule where you get extra points >> yes. if you make head contact. >> that's exactly right.
the potential for change there. they said that the concussion rate about 4 times greater than football. when they looked at mixed martial arts, again, only adult studies it was ten times greater. they talked about the head gear and mouth guards and padding really isn't any data or evidence to show that head pad is really making any kind of a difference in concussion rates. so that's a huge they talked about other things that may predispose your child to that risk. those who one study said if they were doing it less than three hours a week there was less potential for injury. but for every two hours above that it doubled the risk. also, kids not understanding and knowing how to block also increased the risk. they talked about foot injuries especially tae kwon do. and am some of things nose
anticipated like aneurysm in fem roll artery. at last big artery. in groin area which ballooned out because potentially a fall or kick injured that particular participant. not to say you shouldnt do martial arts accurately assess your child's capability and strength and maybe maturity too. lot to think about dr. jo. thanks. >> all right. shall we check in with dave? >> i think so. all right. what about the weather? outside in some spots. and it's that kind of up and down where we get tease for dry air for two or three days and then it warms right back up. hey 70 degrees in tampa as you walk outdoor here 8 o'clock. we get 68 in brandon plant city. 69 degrees in palm harbor you go to the north it's what, 63 degrees in inverness. they actually got down to the upper 50s. but all the hourly, hourly these hourly observations from the
overnight. sarasota at 67. venice at 68. and also in mid to upper 60s along highway 27. so yeah. warmer than yesterday. some 4 to 7 degrees warmer than yesterday. although ocala is about 14 degrees warmer than yesterday. rain is up to the north. actually we wish i could bring more of this up there. but hey at least it's raining in parts of tennessee and some mountains and carolinas they desperately, desperately need it. tere's always n issue, right in here's the issue today weather. i know, it's late november. but there is an enhance theed risk from jackson, mississippi down to say slidell, louisiana. for tornadic activity. over towards huntsville as well there's that potential. but at least the southeast is getting much needed rainfall. now for us just kind of warm. kind of muggy and 82 degrees for high temperature today. in fact our next couple of days will be well above our normal high of 75.
chance of a shower on thursday. that. 30 percent rain chance. then we're kind of quiet friday, saturday and for sunday. vanessa. all right dave, thank you. >> want to check roadways right now. and we're looking veterans expressway. free and clear of crashes. but of course we have the usual congestion we see this time of morning. right now we see some slower speeds there. starting near the top of the vets. moderate congestion all way to area linebaugh we drop to about nine miles an hour. just couple minutes shy of half hour to get from it is completely clear in the northbound direction. in manatee sarasota area debris at 75 south and university parkway. might see right lane blocked. we do know that a road ranger is heading out here to clean this up. please be careful and watch out for that person. just aheads up if you're taking selman expressway to 75 later tonight, or early tomorrow morning, that will be closed. the northbound ramp from selman to 75 between 8 o'clock in the

people. f.b.i. says yesterday an 18-year-old somali born student plowed his car into the students. then started stabbing them. the attacker identified as abdul artan wrote a facebook post before the rampage saying he was sick and tired of seeing his fellow muslims killed and tortured. artan was shot and killed i about an an ohio state university police officer. that's him there. all 11 people injured are expected to survive. artan's rampage lasted just under two minutes before ohio shot him and killed him. potentially savoring people's lives. the officer was responding to reports of a gas leak and happened just to be there at the right time. 28-year-old graduated from ohio state in 2012. he started on the police force early last year. in just a few hours the tennessee school bus driver accused of a speeding and killing at least six elementary school children is set to face a
hawaii collar homicide. a complaints against him started a stacking up days before the crash hamilton county department of education shows that just five days before the crash six students complained about walker sying that he was swerving. going so fast they thought the bus would flip over at one point. and prurply trying to cause them to fall if they were standing in the aisle. walker responded to complaint saying the students were not listening to him. walker still in jail this morning being held on $107,000 bond. he's expected to make his first court appearance today. dozens of stolen guns on the streets this morning following a major gun heist. thieves wiped shelves clean at the tampa arms company. that's on waters avenue and shayla is live outside of the building. i think you've got one of owners with you right now shayla. what have we learned? >> yeah, you're absolutely right. and certainly a lot to take in. not only for richard smith here, but his business partner as well. they are arrived this morning

neighborhood of at least 40 weapons might be missing from the business. as a business owner, what do you feel? i know you probably work hard for what you have. to have this happen. what does it make you feel? >> my main concern right now is the guns being on the street in wrong hands and people getting hurt with those guns. other than that, you know, we have insurance for other things to take care of that. i feel bad for the employees that aren't going to have their extra money for christmas and stuff like but my main concern and disappointment is the missing guns being on the street. okay. and last quickly before we let you go. if you can say anything to the public, if they recognize or know or have any information about this, what would you want the public to hear right now? >> i would like them to hear if you're approached to buy any, any gun, that you don't have some type of record for, that you report it immediately to the police and the authorities. keep these guns off the streets.

next week, computer models are saying they may see few inches of rain this is obvious gollying to help the situation out. but i mean, i just feel bad. especially in gatlinburg you have fires moving in on populated 8:36. looks like brandon, venice, join tampa by touching 70 degrees before 9 o'clock this morning. i've got mid to upper 60s everywhere else. state-wide though, i mean how about 74 in 72 in tallahasseei mentioned this rainfall. here is just first little batch of rain moving through the southeast. but what i did do was kind of took an eye on some computer models. and for the next week or so, this, this may be some good news. i mean you notice these purple these reds, oranges look at the rainfall totals through next tuesday nights three inch in charlotte. four and a half in atlanta six

enjoy. >> some more proof there is benefit to good relationship between a mom and her daughter. teenage girls are known to butt heads with their moms appear point of fact. but a new study shows that mothers may want to fight hard for strong relationship with their daughters. jen epstein is here now with why their teenager sexual health could depend oh on it, right? good example. if you've ever seen gilmore girls, that show. well notice the relationship between laura and rory, it's a unique one. they are pretty about pretty much anything. well dutch researchers say you may want to emulate that. researchers say high quality relationships between a mother and daughter could make the team less likely to have sex younger age previous studies risky sexual behavior with poor parental relationships. but this is first time that a study gives more insight into what role a parent plays. now teen's relationship with her father isn't as much a factor. it also sdment doesn't work same with boys strength of
when boys will have sex. scientists say biggest take away is that a child that is more closely supervised and has lot less stress a home as more time to focus on education which takes precedence over their sexual relationships. >> not surprising either. really isn't. it's hard to, i mean already-- know what i mean. not in a booed way. just, it's just think laurel and rory. that's all you have to think. thank you, jen. to infinity and beyond in a says on a mission to explore every part galaxy dave o. science pro is up next with nasa latest mission and push to get in ? think of your fellow man. ? ? lend him a helping hand. ?
isn't letting anything welcome back. 15 minutes away from top of the hour now. nasa isn't bet letting anything stop it from reach new heights. last 12 years it's can seen spacecraft orbiting saturn. spacecraft is about to enter its final frontier. plan et's famous rings. dave o. science pro is here to talk about the rings of saturn. do we not know what's in there i like the way you said there it's final we will find out bah spacecraft, taking a care looking all moons of saturn, it's about to get as close as it can to the rings in about 5,000 miles away. so spacecraft will get closer to planet's surface. repeatedly diving through this gap between saturn cloud tops and it's innering rings. they will go with f ring. i didn't know they named them. but going to be very close to where their main rings are.
these ring are put together. what they are made of. after that, it will perform a death plunge into saturn's atmosphere on september 15th of 2017 bringing long mission to a close. you know, so what it's going to do is gathering data from titan, okay. and then, the moon, the moon titan moon will help to position it tomorrow in a spot that gets it within 5,000 miles of that f ring 20 times in total. so it can get an eyed on what these rings are made like. and the reason, reason that is last mission. honestly running out of fuel. and they've turned on, i believe the engine i want to say engine for lack of better turn 100 or so times. and they just don't have any fuel left. and so they don't want, they want to bring it into the surface of saturn because they don't want to land this.
may be life on a couple of these moons. they did don't want like earth like microbes to infect those moons. so that's why they are going to crash it into the saturn atmosphere. but over the next a little less than a year you will know more about rings than we ever knew. and i think people don't realize how much work this aircraft has done spacecraft. >> 12 years. over 12 years. it's going to be about it at the end. how about that, you know okay. we don't want to go into this moon. because there could water on here. yeah. we don't want to contaminate maybe some microbes in there. as soon as they get biefl pictures rings we will know and we will send them to you. you've guys heard of leaning tower in san francisco. i've following this for a while now. engineer dug iggy down
fight story millennium story tower singing and leaning a bit. but, here's where the problem, this is where the difference comes in. i that from satellite imagery how good our satellite imagery is the sky scraper is continuing to sing at steady rate where as people on ground are saying it slowed down or even stopped. there's your discrepancy right now. not only is it sinking an inch and they are trying to figure out why, how do we stop it. is it because it wasn't built into bed rock. is it this, or that >> what do you do? >> data from this satellite recorded every 24 days shows that it is singing 1.8 inches to.6 inches which is higher than they previously thought. so it continues to sink and tenants are like wait a minute what's going on.
this is huge problem. do you think it has anything to do with the fact that building codes out there are completely different because of earthquake concerns? and you have to build a building that can withstand some shake. do you think the foundation is giving because of the way it's been built to withstand an earthquake? i mean you would think that by now. >> you're right. nasty what builders are saying. this has been built to withstand a here is my question. what about little tiny shifts in faults or anything like that? >> right. i mean does, does that make it or did they not do it the right way? not into bed rock where it should be. this is going ton one of those fights that goes on and on and on. meantime this sinking by two inches every year. >> two inches >> two inch over year. okay. i know it doesn't seem like a lot. but that's big.
